WE FINISHED IT! (Three years later!)



Thank you for visiting Glencoe Kennels. We hope you enjoy our site!

Last updated 4/18/2014


We specialize in training Spaniels, both English Cockers and English Springers. Our farms are located in Bismarck North Dakota and during the winter months we move to Lockwood Valley, California where we find the weather milder! Many people ask us what is the difference between Cockers and Springers. Our answer is a quote from Keith Erlandson, "The Springer is like a great foot soldier. He will do what he is told to do by his commander. The Cocker is more like a sharp shooter. He thinks he is smarter than his boss and can do a better job by himself!"


The Cockers make you laugh. They are enthusiastic about everything and everyone. The Springers are a bit more reserved. But, don't be fooled by the smaller size of the Cocker. Both make great gun dogs! The Cocker may quarter a slightly smaller pattern than the Springer in an open field. And, in tighter cover, the Springer is capable of working close. We regularly expect both breeds to be able to mark and retreive 50 yards or more, in water or out.


Please read more about us by looking at the information written about "The Farm" and "Our Statistics" or "List of Champions" . For detailed information you might like to look at the Recent Results which lists the placements back to 1993. Finally, we hope you enjoy the section "Our Dogs". If you are not familiar with us or field trials, you might also enjoy the story about the 39th Canadian National.


Finally, thank you to all of our friends and clients that have supported Glencoe Farm and Kennels all these years!
